Stop by the Sculpture Forest and discover four new incredible wild bee sculptures! Created by the community in collaboration with Charmaine Lurch.
The Haliburton Sculpture Forest, in Glebe Park near the village of Haliburton in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario, Canada, is a unique outdoor collection of sculptures by Canadian and international artists. The trails in the Sculpture Forest—for walking and bike riding in spring, summer and fall and walking, snowshoeing and skiing in the winter—provide changing perspectives of the forest and the sculptures in each of the seasons.
The Sculpture Forest experience is ideal for families looking for an interesting outing, for those who enjoy outdoor trails, and for people looking for a unique artistic experience.
We invite you to tour through this website for more information about the sculptures, the artists, and new additions to the Sculpture Forest and for current projects. Visit our photo gallery to see pictures of the sculptures in all four seasons.
The Sculpture Forest shares the park with the Haliburton Highlands Museum and the Haliburton Campus of Fleming College, home to the Haliburton School of Art + Design; great places to visit after you tour the Sculpture Forest.
Dogs on leash are welcome. Please clean up after your dog! For questions on accessibility and more please see our FAQ page.
